New Sync Probe Device Brings Advanced Precision Time Protocol Delivery and
Assurance to Any Network
ADVA Optical Networking today launched
the FSP 150SP, a sync probe device that radically simplifies the
maintenance of 4G mobile networks. Featuring a Precision Time Protocol
clock probe that simultaneously supports Synchronous Ethernet and IEEE
and a built-in GPS receiver, the FSP 150SP provides time
assurance across multi-vendor mobile backhaul infrastructures.
comprehensive capability enables backhaul service providers to
synchronization as a service, something that has not been possible before.
"As the industry continues to drive towards LTE and an Evolved Packet
precise timing is a critical stumbling block," said Christoph Glingener,
ADVA Optical Networking. "Service providers need to do more than simply
fiber to the cell tower; they also need to deliver precise
information for phase alignment between adjacent base stations. This
primary goal of our FSP 150 platform and its new member, the FSP 150SP.
first time, backhaul service providers will be able to deliver precise
information over a multi-vendor Carrier Ethernet infrastructure. Legacy
solutions can be decommissioned and GPS receivers are no longer needed at
base station. Our Syncjack™ functionality and the corresponding
management will unlock substantial new revenue opportunities for
mobile backhaul services."
The FSP 150SP forms an integral part of the FSP 150 family, an
Ethernet access, backhaul and aggregation solution supporting
timing distribution and assurance. The new family member now brings
technology to every node in a network, ensuring comprehensive
management, monitoring and testing. Whether a greenfield installation,
older first generation Carrier Ethernet network, all can now be
upgraded to enable new revenue from delivery of SLA-based
services with both PTP and SyncE network monitoring and performance
Precise clock accuracy measurements and enhanced statistics can be gathered
external, internal and GPS references, or even when no synchronization
"The need to evolve from synchronization based on E1s to new and
synchronization standards is common to all mobile operators evolving
packet backhaul networks," said Patrick Donegan, senior analyst, Heavy
"While some want to manage this new capability entirely themselves, many
operators want to outsource some or all of that to their wholesale
providers. A solution that supports all the major synchronization
complete with service assurance that the synchronization service is
requirements, is an important contribution to the continued cost and
optimization of mobile backhaul networks world-wide."
